Brazil | MDS 17

I’m a Brazilian/ Portuguese born and raised in Rio with a double bachelor of Design and a little more than ten years of experience in the field.

During this time I’ve worked on some of the biggest studios in Rio and began two entrepreneurial journeys, my own sustainable design studio and the Ecookies. These endeavors express my vision as a designer and human being, aiming to innovate creatively, improving the world around us, for people, business and the environment altogether.

Which kind of contribution has provided to your career the MDS experience?
The Master gave me a lot of complimentary knowledge as a designer and even as an entrepreneur. Besides the fact that one of the workshops allowed me to start a project with the packaging producer, Sirap Group, which later offered me an internship and now I’m there fulltime as Trade Marketing Manager of Business Development.

Outline the MDS experience according four keywords or key adjectives
Design, Innovation, Business, Strategy.

Would you suggest this experience to other professionist?
I would suggest it to anyone with a design background wanting to broaden their view in management, business, innovation or just thinking about being an entrepreneur.
